Somebody knows.
Somebody knows.

I’ve known Dave since he was 4-years-old, and I was waitressing in his parents’ restaurant. When he told me about discovering he was adopted and wanting to search for his birth parents, the first thing I said was, “We need to to a documentary!”

I’ve worked in film and television for decades. As a TV writer/producer, I worked on shows like America’s Next Top Model and WWF’s Tough Enough. I was also the Director of Development for a Shanghai production company and directed the first reality show on Chinese television. And I’ve been writing film reviews for a decade for I started out though in the film world, working on everything from cult classic The Toxic Avenger to being one degree from Kevin Bacon.

Dave is like family to me. And I am thrilled to be sharing this journey of self-discovery with him.
